Thanks to our Sunriver vacation, July was a big month for bicycling: 226 miles!1 That’s more than 2.5 times last month’s distance.
My distance for 2012 so far is 632 miles.2 At 20 mpg and $3.50 per gallon,3 that’s a savings of $110.60. Ignoring any other benefits of riding, this is funding my rack, pannier, and rain gear I got last year.
I feel fortunate to work close enough to home that I can commute by bike. It helps clear my mind going both directions. :-)
